Art'scool "Inspired" Online Exhibition

Jamie Kubala’s 7th grade students at Herbert Hoover Middle School created abstract images using pencil, pastel, marker, and paint. They were inspired by the works of Sonia Delaunay.

Online Exhibition

Over the past six months, K–12 teachers from throughout Western New York have entered our Art'scool "Inspired" contest, making it clear that artmaking and learning are deeply connected. Each participating class visited the Albright-Knox Art Gallery through our Art'scool program, then submitted the artwork students made in response to the visit and related lessons they did in the classroom.

All contest entries are now on view in our online gallery below. Please take a look, and be inspired!

An exhibition of selected entries is on view at the Albright-Knox through Sunday, June 17, 2012.

The Art'scool "Inspired" contest and exhibition are presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York.



  • Margaret Raab and Fred Wild’s 8th grade students at Maryvale Middle School constructed small multi-media sculptures depicting buildings in downtown Buffalo, motorized them, and placed them on a map they created (pictured in this video). They were inspired by Martha Boto’s motorized sculpture Structure Transparente (Transparent Structure), 1969.

  • Jamie Kubala’s 7th grade students at Herbert Hoover Middle School wrote statements about art then displayed them in an LED display. They were inspired by the work of Jenny Holzer, which often consists of words or statements presented in different media, including posters, flyers, and sculpture.
